strengthen the social foundations of our society - building strong relationships - collaborating to support families of all kinds, nurturing leadership and developing self-reliant communities - creating understanding and harmony through shared leisure lifestyles.
serve as "stewards of the environment" - creating environmental awareness and encouraging ecosystem approaches to planning - protecting, preserving and restoring significant natural areas and corridors.
